This Week at Kulik Lodge, Alaska

Kulik River Rainbow



I'm not sure summer has arrived here at Kulik Lodge in Katmai. There are still many patches of snow on the hills around camp, the water is uncomfortably cold in the river, it's been dreary and rainy - up until today. The sun came out today, wind died, and fishing was pleasant, except for a few biting bugs. The Kulik is giving up some nice rainbows, but the hit so far as been the fresh chum fishing.

Fresh Chum Salmon



It's wild and furious on The Branch. We're fishing 9 weight Sage ONEs & TCX's with RIO intermediate lines and having a lot of fun. These fish run line, explode, and fight as well as any tarpon of the same size. It's a fun week.

RIO Blog

We're doing a quick turnaround from Mexico to Russia this week. I have just finished a saltwater article for the RIO blog that will be posted soon. The RIO blog is an interesting place to read short stories written by chosen anglers from across the country about all kinds of fishing experiences and tips from local to exotic. Thought you might want to take a look.

We're getting closer to launching our new integrated web site. The new site will be much easier to navigate and we're excited about it. More to come on that!

"She Trout It"

This was the end result but we were off on a rough start. We're at Boca Paila, Mexico, this week and I was fishing with Sara, one of our guests.  She has traveled with us to many salt and fresh destinations, but at home she is a trout fisherman. So, while our guide was telling her what she did wrong to miss the first bonefish, I thought it might make an interesting blog.



As soon as the fish took the fly she raised her rod tip as she would for trout back in Ohio and I heard our Mexican guide say, "She trout it." Old habits die hard as she can attest. She knew she had to strip set but in the heat of the moment she lifted the rod tip. A strip set is made by keeping the rod tip low and pulling the line back with your hand instead of using the rod tip.



A strip set does two things. First it hooks the fish, but secondly if you miss the fish the fly has not been pulled away and you'll often get a second chance because the fish will continue to look for the fly. If you lift the tip the fly comes out of the water and the fish is gone. Strip setting also works very well for streamer fishing in freshwater for the same reason. Once the fish is hooked, then you can raise the tip to fight the fish.

 

We've had a wonderful week here at Boca Paila. We've caught tarpon, snook, permit, bonefish and a handful of other fish. The week started out wet but the clouds and rain cleared out, blue skies appeared and we've had a great week and look forward to returning next year.

Back home we're getting ready to launch a new web site. You'll hear from us soon about that. It will be much easier to navigate and operate for both you and us. I'll be posting more photos there very soon!
